7. Today Changed Everything


Claire’s Point of View

“Hello? Mum? Why won’t anyone answer the door!” I said abruptly, I had been standing outside my own house, ringing the doorbell for almost 20 minutes.

“Sorry honey, I thought your flight was for tomorrow!”

“Oh shoot, I forgot about the time difference.” I scratched the back of my head.

“Well then we won’t be in town until tomorrow, where are you going to stay?”

“I don’t know! I didn’t exactly plan this mum.” 

“How about you go and stay at Gemmas?”

“Gemma? I don’t know…” I bit my lip.

“She has a new apartment sweety, Harry won’t be there, relax.”

“Ugh fine, text me the address.”

“On it, bye sweetheart!”

I cut the phone and groaned, I didn’t have anything against Gemma, she was like an older sister, I just felt a little deleterious, I had known about Anne for almost 3 months & I hadn’t called once. I texted her asking if it was okay for me to stay a night. I sat on the staircase outside of my home with my face in the palm of my hands until my phone buzzed. 

‘I’d love for you to spend the night! I haven’t talked to you in ages, i’m out atm, but i’ll be home in about 20 min, see you!xxx’

I sighed in relief, I had a place to stay for a night. I called for a taxi and waited patiently, I sat on the tiny stool on my front porch, tracing the table beside it until my finger dug into a small hole. On it I saw Harry’s & myself’s initials, we had put them there when we were little kids, I sighed as I flash backed to that day.

’ “Harry give that back, it’s mine!” “But you don’t even use it Claire.” He frowned and tossed me my favourite pen, “Thanks curly.” I giggled as he crossed his arms, “What?” “You don’t share anything with me anymore.” “I’m sorry, here.” I threw the pen at him and crossed my arms as well. “Come here!” I slowly walked over, tripping on a step. “Come on!” As I groaned he showed me what he was doing, he had printed H.S neatly on the corner of the new table my mum had bought. “Your turn.” He smiled giving me the pen. I slowly wrote my initials under his, matching his writing, we admired it until my mum had found out, who was really upset. ‘

“Where does the time go?” I sighed as I took a stick and made circles in the dirt. ‘Beep Beep!’ I looked up to see the taxi had arrived, I grunted as I got up, picking up my luggage.


I waited patiently outside of Gemma’s new apartment, it was huge. I was surprised she moved out, her step-father was living all on his own now. Ever since Harry’s dad had separated from his mother he’d changed completely, he was always concerned about getting into tiny arguments, especially when it came to my parents, who treated him like their own kin. A small Honda pulled up onto the driveway & I stood up dusting off the dirt on my bum.

“Claire!” She yelled getting out of her car & running towards me, my smile widened and I hugged her, she felt so contained, it made me comfortable. “I’ve missed you so much Gemma!” I said lightly into her hair. She broke the hug, “I’ve missed you more! How come I haven’t heard from you in like 5 months?” I shrugged, “I moved after college.” She frowned, “Was one small phone call too much to ask for?” I turned red, “I —” “I’m just kidding! Come on in oh, and don’t mind the mess, I wasn’t expecting a guest.” She chuckled unlocking the door.


“Thank you so much, this lemonade is amazing.” I smiled, sipping the beverage, the sour taste of lemons filled my tongue. “No problem,” She smiled and sat down on the couch opposite of me. “You know Claire, I’ve always thought of you as my sister, since Harold couldn’t be that feminine figure I’ve always wanted, you easily took that empty spot in my heart.” I smiled at her, letting her continue.

“Ever since my mum’s been gone I’ve felt really lonely, I mean Harry was on tour, you were — god know’s where & my step-dad was just horrible at grieving, he would yell at me for the most absurd things.” She paused and looked down at the ground, “So I moved out of that horrific atmosphere & bought myself this apartment, to get away. But no matter how hard I tried, those memories were just too sentimental to let go of.” She rubbed her eye, looking at her made me want to cry, Gemma was an emotional mess. 

“Well now that you and Harry are back maybe things will change.” She smiled and I choked on the sip that burned my throat. “He — he’s what?” “He’s here, he came a little while before you texted me, he’s with my step-dad.” She smiled. “Oh.” I slowly choked out, was I supposed to be happy or sad about this? “Yup, tonight we’re going to dinner at his apartment, you’ll come right?” She smiled, “Uhm sure.” I said quietly.


Zayn’s Point of View

“Do you think he’ll show up?” I bit my lip and stared at Liam, “He’s not picking up his phone, I doubt it.” Liam looked back up at me from his phone frowning. “Well his excuse is understandable, I just wish he didn’t leave without informing us.” Louis sighed holding his head in his hands.

All of a sudden, the door flew open and in stormed Niall. “Lads, I just got a call from management, they want updates on Harry.” He said with his phone in his hands “I think it’s a no show.” I mouthed, “You sure?” He whsipered back & we all nodded in agreement.

“Hello? … Yes Jon, Harry won’t be here in time for the gig … No he hasn’t … Alright we’ll call you as soon as he does … Bye.” Niall cut the phone and crashed onto the couch, “Well this isn’t how I dreamed of the world tour.” His hat was on his face and his leg was in the air.

“I guess it’s just us 4, boys.” Louis sighed, “I guess I should’ve waited to tell him…” I mumbled to myself, “Waited for what?” Niall glared at me and Liam and I looked at each other. “Nothing.” “Oh come on, what is it? It’s not like things can get any worse.” “Katrina tried to kiss Zayn.” Liam sighed, looking at the ground. “Is that why he left?” Niall questioned, “I think it’s more over because of his mum, but I guess this was a part of it.” Louis & Niall frowned.

“It’s alright boys, Harry needed to go home, he hadn’t gone once after his mum passed away.” Louis patted me on the back and got up. “Uggh.” He groaned holding his stomach, “What happened?” I questioned, “Nothing I’m fine.” “Louis..” “Well let’s get going then, don’t want to be late for the show tonight.” “Sí vamos a ir.” Niall smiled, “What?” “Yo dije que vamos a ir” Everyone glared at him. “Niall?” Louis said, “Si?” “Shut up.” “Triste.” Louis rolled his eyes and we all put on our coats.


Harry’s Point of View

“Babe could you please watch the pasta sauce, I gotta make a call.” I smiled at her and she nodded, I carefully took out my phone from my pocket & dialled Gemma’s number, I was expecting her & my step-dad to be at my place in about an hour. 

“Hello, Gemma?”


“You’re coming right?”

“Yup, and I’m bringing a surprise!”

“A surprise? What?”

“Don’t worry, you’ll see when it comes, bye.”

She cut the phone on me and I scratched my head, what surprise was she talking about? I went to my room to look for my favourite tie when I remembered Louis borrowed it. I tried opening his room door, but it wouldn’t budge. I pushed harder until I fell over inside on top of his clothes, his room was an absolute mess. There were clothes on the floor, candy wrappers everywhere, I even saw a pizza box stuffed under the bed, and of course the bed was undone. I sighed picking up some of his garbage, it was hard living with Louis sometimes.

As I picked up some of the garbage on the floor I found a note stuffed in one of his shoes, it looked important, but clearly Louis didn’t care. I opened it carefully and sat down, leaning on the bed.

My hands gently slid down the page, a tear slowly dropped onto the word cancer. Louis had hid such a big secret from us, from me. I was his best friend, I couldn’t believe it, this had to be some kind of joke. But it all looked so damn real. “I hate you Lou.” I said crying, I dug my face into my knees sobbing.
